Kids Pony Camp

Kids Pony Camp


Ran by Tipperary Mountain Trekking Centre (

At our pony camps, children spend a minimum of two hours each day in the saddle.

This includes riding instruction in lessons and on treks, and during mounted games.

The rest of each day is spent learning about ponies, including how to groom, feed, lead, tack up and care for them. We emphasise and train children in the importance of body language and positive reinforcement in the handling of horses and ponies. We also teach campers about tack, in particular the parts of the saddle and bridle, and how to clean them. Children are also expected to help with stable management, including mucking out and sweeping the yard. Older riders can also achieve one of our Equine Skills awards as a record of their participation in the camp.

We can loan you suitable helmets and footwear if necessary. We recommend that frequent riders purchase their own gear. 

Children should wear comfy pants and wellies and bring a change of clothes.

Children should bring their own packed lunch and snacks.
